巴士上睡覺的人
Sleeping People on the Bus
噴墨美術紙本 Inkjet on fine art photo paper, 2009

巴士是香港最常用的交通工具之一,特別是比較長的距離。我估計這是因為全程都可以有位坐及不須要轉車。這變相提供了一個短暫穩定的空間給乖客幹自己的事情,有的會看電視節目、化妝、甚至睡覺。
睡覺應該是動物最私密行為之一,因為睡覺的時候我們不能對任何危險作出反應,睡覺這行為應該選擇在一個安全和私密的地方進行。但工作沈重及缺乏時間的香港人卻需要在巴士上睡覺。
我嘗試利用針孔相機記錄這現象。針孔相機給了盡可能長的曝光時間去記錄睡覺的時間,針孔相機也形造了一種夢幻的感覺,恰好和睡覺這行為互相呼應著。 繁忙的香港人也許只能夠在巴士上睡覺時尋回自己的夢。

Bus is one of the main transportation in Hong Kong, especially for long-distance travel. I guess this is because you can easily have a seat from starting point until you arrive your destination without any transfer. It provide a chance for passenger to do their own stuff stably. Passengers like to watch TV programme, make-up or even sleep.
Sleeping should be the most private behavior of animal. Since we cannot response to any danger during sleep, we should only sleep inside a safe and private space. However, (Hong Kong) people need to do that on the bus, due to heavy over-time workloads and leaking of personal time.
I tried to record this phenomenon with a pinhole camera. Pinhole camera gives the longest exposure time, in order to capture the sleeping time as long as possible. It also give a dreamy effect to the photo responding to the behavior -- sleeping. Maybe the busy Hong Kong people can only fine their dream during their uncomfortable sleep on the bus.
